I am a member of St. Dominic Catholic Church.  I have been working at St. Dominic Catholic School for 15 years.  I am currently teaching a 3K class.  I am so blessed to be teaching in a Catholic School and love being a part of St. Dominic!  I am married to Scott Rowe and we have 3 children.  Our children attended St. Dominic Catholic School and continued their Catholic education at McGill Toolen Catholic High School.  Our daughter graduated from Auburn University last spring and is a Pharmacist.  Our oldest son is in his Senior year and our youngest is in his Freshman year, both are attending The University of South Alabama.

Dear Parents,

We had a wonderful weather week learning about the Letter W.  We learned many new songs about the weather and made some fun crafts!  Next week, we will continue the Alphabet with the Letter X and our Theme will be St. Patrick’s Day.

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. Brigitte McDonald

This week we are learning about the letter S.
S is for space, snail, Sesame Street, saints and snake.
Next week we will learn the letter T.
T is for transportation, truck, taco and tulip.
We are also having fun learning about Valentine and Mardi Gras.
Friday the 14th we will have a special morning snack to celebrate Valentines day.
If you have empty boxes of cereals please send them to school as we need them for a school project.
Thank you.
Have a great week.
Mrs. Brigitte

Upcoming Events…

You may want to decorate a small wagon-type float for your child to ride in or you may walk with your child in the parade. Each child will need to bring some “throws” to give out at the parade.  These do not have to be extravagant…beads, candy, small trinkets, etc. Please return the form ASAP indicating if your child is going to have a float, or will be walking in the parade, and who will be accompanying your child.
